Meet Dr. James McDonald

I believe that practicing dentistry is a privilege. Helping people improve their lives by improving and maintaining their oral health is the reason I became a dentist over 30 years ago. I truly enjoy getting to know my patients and their families, and have built some wonderful relationships with them over the years.


I feel I owe it to my patients, who put their trust in me, to provide dental services in the best and most modern manner possible. The changes and developments in the field of dentistry have been amazing, and have provided me with exciting new ways to provide treatment for my patients. I continue my education through the Heartland Study Club and have been involved with organized dentistry through the North Dakota Board of Dental Examiners and the North Dakota Dental Association.

Our Team

Our staff members are truly the heart of our practice and have been a special blessing. They are all good people who are good at what they do. I’ve worked with most of them for a decade or two, and consider them a very special group of friends.

Outside the Office

Over the years, I have been a Red Cross board member, served on church boards, been a big brother in the Big Brother/Big Sister Program, taught confirmation and have been a youth athletic coach.
